when we create an html template, do we have to include the psd version or just the files that would need to be edited by the buyer such as logo, price tables, e.t.c.?

Well, you can include what you want, you can include full layout PSD ’s or just elements or even not include any PSD files. But it may increase your item’s value (price) if you include full PSD .

While it’s not mandatory to include a PSD for each page, you should include them.

Including them will help your customers when they customize the pages (they can create a quick preview before editing any HTML /CSS), and will bring you more sales ;)

If you have a PSD , include it – it’ll add value. If not, don’t – it’s not required.

I have an HTML template without a PSD (since it was designed in-browser), and it hasn’t been an issue.

It’s not about what’s easy for you, it’s about what the customer wants. Obviously the PSD is not required, but it’s often considered essential by customers. You’ll get people complaining if you don’t include the PSD files.

I did not see a single customer change the PSD files from the themes we created. :))

We had complaints for not including PSD files to our first theme and I know of quite a few people specifically who have used our PSD files.
